This chili recipe comes from the January/February Issue of 'Country Woman' Magazine. Guaranteed to warm you up on a cold day! It was submitted by Judy King of Johnstown, PA. *The diced tomatoes weren't included in the original recipe, but I like tomatoes in my chili. **Ditto the sour cream! ***Ditto the crackers!
